Chateau des Fines Roches (the impressive building) were not created as a winery. In fact there have never been made or aged wines wines inside the building (Chateau). It was in the 1930ties purshaced by an entrepeneur Louis Mousset. He had three children.
His daughter Catherine inherited vineyards around Chateau Fines Roches and the rigth to use the brand name.
Catherine Mousset married Robert Barrot and their part of the inheritage was named Vignobles Mousset-Barrot. Today it's the two daughters of Catherinne and Robert who run the firm. Gaëlle is in charge of the vineyards, Amélie takes care of the office and promotional matters. Gaëlle's husbond  Frédéric Maillet who is educated as an oenolog makes the wines.
The vineyards of Chateau des Finesh Roches cover 53 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape of which 48 ha are with red varieties.
